Getting Real in 2012: Keeping Your New Year’s Resolutions (+ $1 Off Tropicana Trop50)

Wow…I can’t believe it’s already 2012! Time sure flies when you’re having fun!

Of course, every new year brings new resolutions. This year, one of mine is to actually keep the other one ;) My real resolution? To tone up and eat healthier…and I know I’m not alone.

Year after year, top resolutions include things like “get fit”, “become more healthy” and “lose weight”. Why are they so common? Because they’re ultra-hard to keep! But it’s not impossible. All it takes is a little dedication to the cause. Whether you’re trying to fit back into your favorite little black dress (or your wedding gown — I know many of us married ladies have that goal) or just tone up to get your beach body back, giving yourself solid goals, setting milestones along the way and ultimately keeping yourself accountable to achieve those goals and milestones will help you ensure your New Year’s resolutions are achieved in 2012.

So if your resolution is to lose weight or tone up like me and many other women out there, there are tons of ways to do it. Anything from putting yourself on a work-out plan, to committing to eating better will help you achieve your goals. Even simply cutting out a few calories here and there can really make a big difference.

That’s why Tropicana® came out with Trop50®. It’s like your favorite fruit juice beverage, only with 50% less sugar and calories. They actually sent me a coupon to try it for myself, and I was pleasantly surprised.

(I even enjoyed a glass of Trop50 orange while writing this blog post!)

Normally, I don’t like drinks that would be considered “diet” because I really can’t stand the taste of artificial sweeteners, but since Trop50® doesn’t contain artificial sweeteners, it’s really not much different than regular OJ and other fruit juice beverages. Notice I mentioned other fruits? That’s because they offer flavors like Farmstand Apple, Pomegranate Blueberry (my personal favorite), Pineapple Mango, Lemonade and Raspberry Lemonade in addition to the traditional orange juice choices.

If you’re interested in trying it for yourself, head over to the Trop50® Facebook page to snag a coupon for $1 off. All you have to do is share your 2012 resolution and your secret motivation (ya know, stuff like I getting in shape in order to fit back in your wedding gown). If your secret motivation is too juicy to tie your name to (something like losing weight to make your fiance’s ex jealous), you can also disguise yourself to keep it under wraps. I shared mine; you should too!

Here’s wishing you all a happy and successful 2012! Good luck with all of your resolutions!
